The Proclamation—Opinions ol the P ■-*.
The Proclamation of President Lineoln t -e- 1
shadowing emancipation to all slaves held by
rebels in aims agaiust the constitutional u
thority of the government, issued as a nr
measure, under the war power both implt.d
and expressed in the Constitution, is one of
the most important papers, if not the most i i- |
portant, ever issued on this continent sin i j
the Declaration of American Independent . j
A proposition to strike the shackles from m
lions ol men. women and children, without tl
consent ofthoee who have long held them i
bondafhq was not expected to fall quietly upo
the public car,and to be received without cal.
ing fortli a diversity of opinion. But we ar
justified in saying that the expression given t
public sentiment by tlie public press of Ih.t
country, has been tar less divided and inflaina*
tory than most prudent men had reckoned nit
on. A very large portion of the press, includ
ing tlie entire republican press, and so far as
we have seen, the united religious press, give
to the proclamation a most cordial approval,
while the dissenting sentiment finds expres
sion only in th j democratic portion of tlie
press. And there is one gratifying fact in con
nection with tlie democratic papers. It is (Ids:
while a few of them are warm and generous in
their approval of the proclamation, and some
others, while not exactly approving are dis
posed to treat it fairly and candidly, not one
that we have seen—if we make a solitary ex
ception—has suggested anything like revolt,or
resistance to the measure proposed by tlie
But occupying no more space witli our own
comments, we proceed to copy from the press
of the country:
From the Baltimore American.
We have long expressed the conviction that
slavery in this country is doomed; and Uh-ad
vent oi this proclamation we can scarce con
sider, under the circumstances, as hastening
its fate. Perfectly mad as tlie cotton States
were in challenging a conflict for its exten
sion, the ferocious spirit they have stfown in
tlie fight lias, little by little, lost them thesyui
pathies of the world at large; until left alone
as its especial champions, and inadequate to
sustain a much longer struggle, it would have
Krishcd, ultimately, whether tlie Executive
d moved in the matter iu the way he lias
seen fit to do or not.
And as to its effects upon the institution in
the bolster State, it is not at all problematical.
If Virginia or North Carolina become free
States by the terms of the proclamation, tin;
exemption resulting to Maryland is of no prac
tical value whatever. With free Slates on
both sides of her, who would care to own tie
groes neper aim what possible advantage
would wc have over those obnoxious to tlie I
terms of the President’s manifesto in other !
States? As the matter stands even at present.,
negro property there has become so uncertain j
in its tenure that in many portions of our com- |
mouweaitk they are as good as free already.
* * * In conclusion, we do not think
anything whatever is to answer in putting
down the rebellion except the utmost vigor in
our military and naval movements.
From the Wheeling (Va.) Intelligencer.
There will be some persons who will make
the proclamation the occasion for the com
mencement of hostilities—just as they made j
the first proclamation he ever issued an occa- i
sion. But as they did not effect their ends ;
then so they will not now. Snell people will
be tramped to the bottom. They cannot roll 1
back the tide of events. Tiiat which has been
so long prophesied is now upon us. Let tile
guilty head of secession bear it all without a
’ word of sympathy from one loyal man or wo
man. For our part, while we deplore the stern
necessity that has compelled the President to
the step he has taken, we say a thousand
Amens to the proclamation. In the language
of that distinguished patriot, Colonel Metcalf
of Kentucky, we say: “If we cannot have sla
very and the Union then let slavery die tlie
death it has brought upon itself.”
From the Worcester Spy.
President Lincoln’s proclamation concern- ,
lug siavery is one of the most important docu
incuts tiiat ever came from the executive de
partment of this republic. It begins the end
of the relielliou by establishing a war policy in
regard to the cause of it. The President de
clares now, as heretofore, that his aim is to i
crush the rebellion and save the republic; and,
feeling tiiat tlie time lias come to strike at the
principal cause and support of the rebellion,
he issues a carefully prepared declaration ul
tlie policy that will hereafter be pursued by tlie
government, in order to defeat treason and
save the Union.
From Zion's Advocate.
The chief magistrate of the nation, with all
the facts before him, has seen fit to issue this
proclamation. To him the measure appeals
feasible and be adopts it. Whatever may be
its physical effect, its moral effect will be great
er. It places tlie government in a new atti
tude in regard to this subject. It proclaims
freedom to the slaves in all the States which
shall be in rebellion against the government
on the first day of January next; and at the
same time provides that no detriment from
this source shall be sustuiued by loyal citizens.
Believing tiiat it is by slave labor that tlie en
emy in the disloyal Slates is maintained, the
President proposes to weaken them at this
point. In the mean time, wc stand before oth
er nations in a new and more lavorable posi
tion,—a position more in harmony with our re
publican institutions and government. Let
us all contluue to hope and pray that God by
bis good providence will still guide our rulers,
and that this rebellion may be put down, and
its instigators brought to their merited doom.
From the Kocklaud Free Press—Jameson Dcm.
The President of the Lulled Slates, as Coin- |
mander-in-Cblef of the Federal armies, lias is
sued a most important proclamation for the
purposes of crushing rebellion and saving the I
Union and Constitution. He has proclaimed '
that on the first day of January next all slaves j
In States or parts of States in rebellion slaill I
thenceforward and lorever lie free. The mo- 1
lives which have prompted Mr. Lincoln to
these acts are a- pure as those which actuated
the noble Greeks and Homans whose names
have been preserved iu history for devotion to
country. It was a step of immense responsi
bility. The measure is not only one which
clutches tile rebellion by the throat, but it in
augurates a social revolution of vast import
ance. With what sincerity of heart, iu the
hope that it may result in good, tire President
put his hand to tiiis w ork, we know by the
carefulness with which it lias bceu performed.
Tlic President of the United States has often
declared and show n that he has no desire to
meddle with the institution of slavery, or to
harm tile inhabitants of the slave States farther
than he is compelled, to preserve the Union,
but alter haviug in vain poured out rivers of
blood of loyal citizens, amt heaps of treasure
to accomplish his object, he is obliged to pro
claim the abolition of slavery that the Union
nmv live. Tile negro is part of our capital in
this war, and the proclamation announces that
we intend to use it. Terrible necessity drives
us to it. The time is ripe, and the President
has »|ioken the decisive words. Now let every i
man who loves his country stand by the Pres
ident with heart of oak against his revilers.
[ Fro in the Christian Register.]
Mr. Lincoln lias spoken to the country
with an emphasis which none can deny. The
policy of b'ls administration has been wise and
temperate. He lias seized every opportunity |
to show that the object of this war is the resto
ration of tin* political unity of the Uepublie.
From his standpoint, with a clear view of the
exigencies of the hour, and from a fliui con
viction of the vital connection which such a
policy has with the success of our arms, lie
calmly declares that the salvation of the coun
try depends upon the settlement of the <iucs
tinn of slavery. He lias appealed to the )teo
ple of the Southern States to make common
cause lor a common object, to consider some
plan for a gradual manumission of the slaves
upon some fair basis of compensation and col
onization. I n ids own words of a former proc
lamaliou, lie says that “the change it contem
plates would come gently as tin- dews of heav
en, not rending or wrecking anything. Mr.
Lincoln is the chosen leader of tiiis people.—
No defence of the honesty of his purpose is
needed. The sharply defined policy ol ills ad
ministration has never for a moment been lost
sight of. Ills aim is the Union, the Coustitu
lion, and (he preservation of those institutions
which the Fathers bequeathed, and which for
near a century has proved it blessing to the
world. Whatever, therefore, stands as the
sword threatening the life of the nation, the
President must destroy. He has no alterna
tive. Upon him rests the responsibility of suc
cess or failure.
Whatever the result may be, wc must look
ttpou the matter bravely. The proclamation
is made, and if it serves to unite the South
still more closely in their insanity, we of the
North must meet them by equal unanimity.—
Let us meet the question fearlessly. It must
be met before the close of the w ar, and the
more fortitude and heroism we display to-day,
the simpler and plainer the issue will he to
morrow. It has its difficulties and its dang
ers. hut if every man brings to it his earnest
will, his faithful etfort, even this can he over
A w ise and tender Providence has ruled
through storm and passion, through blood,
and lire, anti smoke, and the dawn *if a new
morning has come. We are to-day where
(loil has placed ns. The burden was laid at
our feet, we took it up reluctantly, but we
have borne it bravely, and are to lay it down
triumphantly. The issue between a false sys
tem and a true lias been laid upon this gener
ation, and it has decided in favor of a true.
[From tlie St. Louis Democrat.]
We in this, the hour of our triumph, after
long years of struggle, bitter denunciation,
cruel disappointment, anil most wasting labor,
in battle with a giant wrong, feel, as the shout
of victory ascends lor the principle of our
adoption and our love, that we have not strug
gled, and toiled, and (ought in vain.
[From the Independent.]
We send forth to-day the most important
paper ever published in the Independent—the
most extraordinary document ever proceeding
from this government. It is a decree of sub
stantial emancipation, issued by the Couimand
er-in Chief of tlie army and navy of the Unit
ed States of America. Perhaps it is too much
to say that it is a decree of emancipation. It
is rather a solemn notice served upon reliel
liohs States that such a decree will he made
upon the 1st of January. 18ft:j. It is like a
bond for a deed, and w ill in due time compel
the execution and delivery of the deed.
There can be no State paper imagined more
noble than one which carries substantial liber
ty to millions of slaves. It it is that very mor
al grandeur, and sublime importance which
makes us jealous of anything .rliich threatens
its certainty, or diminishes its moral power.

* We rejoice most heartily that the axe is
laid to the root of the tree. The proclamation
meets our views both in what it does, and what
it omits to do.
[From the Chicago Tribune.]
From the date ol t his proclamation begins
the history of the Republic as our fathers de
signed to have it. Let no one think to stay
the glorious reformation. Every day’s events
are hastening its triumph, and whosoever will
place himself in the way it will grind him to
[From the Bostou Journal.]
We all know, of course, that this proclama
tion is a brulum fulmen unless the rebellion
is overcome by force of arms. Tiie same ob
jection however, if it is one, applies to a large
portion of our etrorts during this war. It
seems to us that no good citizen can fail to see
his duty, or decline to do it manfully.
]From the Washington Republican.]
This proclamation w ill lie received by the
loyal states with a perfect/urorrof acclama
tion. It will lose the President a few latter
day friends, who did not profess to become so
until alter his election, and who have been so
now only for tlietr ow n sinister purposes, lint
it w ill restore to the Presidentall his old friends,
and unite tiie sound portion of the people in
one solid and impregnable mass in support of
the Union and the Constitution.
[From the Philadelphia North American.]
The proclamation of President Lincoln is
the last, and to us the greatest of the extraor
dinary recent events which mark this as an
historic age. This proclamation of tiie Presi
dent is the decree of fat*- rather than the utter
ance of any man. and no one who lias thought
fully observed tiie course of recent events could
fail to foresee that tiie cloud settling darkly
around us would very soon be lighted up with
a flash that would mark tiie turning point of
the accumulation. The storm is not over, but
it is no longer gathering. We can see now
that there is to be attend, and we know the
end is to be favorable to the future unity and
prosperity of this great nation.
[From the Cincinnati Commercial.]
We have no doubt the President’s policy, as
laid down in his proclamation, will be approv
ed by an immense majority of tiie people of the
United States who are loyal to our form of
government. Tiie most conservative cannot
complain that the President has not shown,
and is not showing, an eminent degree of mod
eration. The rebels are now only informed
that at tiie end of three months the govern
ment will cease to recognize their slaves as
property. It cannot be alleged that this is not
giving lair warning.
[From tho Cieaveiand (Ohio) Herald )
Now the issue is presented. Slavery is to
be interfered with—unless tiie rebels ground
arms; and we invite the “butternut*” to tiie the
mark, make the issue, and the civilized world
may look on while the greatest contest the
world ever saw is to be decided.
[From the New York Evangelist.]
This is a stupendous act. It in effect gives
notice to the rebels that if they do not lay
down their arms in less than one hundred
days, the bonds will be stricken from tiie limbs
of millions of slaves.
At the North it mav offend some.lint we lie

forestalls all coming trials. It is a victory be

[From the Augusta Age—Item.]
The radicals have at length triumphed.
They have succeeded in extorting from the
President a proclamation proclaiming emanci
pation to the slaves of all States in rebellion
against tlie Government on tlie 1st day of
January. 1803.
It is palpable from tlie terms of tlie procla
mation that tlie President does not believe
that a "military necessity” exists at this lime,
lor cutting loose from tlie moorings of the
Constitution, and commit ling the ship of state
to tlie perilous revolutionary waves ol negro
It is unnecessary for us to say that we are
opposed to tlie proclamation, as well as tlie
schemes expected to be subserved by its issu
ance. We believe its promulgation at this time
to be both unnecessary and ill-advised.
(From the X. Y. Express—Bcll-Everett.]
Tlie utterance of such a proclamation—un
der existing circumstances, so it seems to us,
will add 300,010 rebel soldiers to tlie rebellion,
and be on the instant worth 30,o6o men to the
rebel Bragg in Kentucky.
Tlie human mind,—so it seems to 11s,—never
conceived a policy so teell fitted utterly to de
grade and destroy white labor,and to reduce
the white man to the level of the negro, us the
whole ol this proclamation scheme.
[From tlie X. Y- World—Apostato Rep.]

art of political balancing. When in his elevat

maintains his equilibrium. While lie w as hu

tion for w hich they so loudly clamored. When
tlie unrelenting necessity of war compelled
him to restore that general to command, lie
found il necessary to pacify this exacting and
meddlesome faction, and lie throws a sop to
the baling three mouthed Cerberus, in tlie

[From flic X.Y. Journal of Commerce—Conservative-]
Mr. Lincoln lias yielded to the radical pres
sure and issued a proclamation. It is, on the
whole, a curious document. The only result
which nil adherence to the principles of this
proclamation can lead to, is a continuation of
the war, in a dark future, in which the end is
beyond our vision. One effect of this procla

[From the liuspel Banner.]
The most, important movement since the
battles in Matyland, is the issuing ol the proc
lamation for tile abolition of slavery in the re
bel states. This is a measure our country has
long waited for, and which, if vigorously sup
ported by the whole North, must hasten the
down fall ol the rebellion.
We can see no reason why this measure
should not receive the most cordial support
While all admit that the Government lias no
power to abolish slavery by force in any loyal
Stale, it lias been conceded at the North that
it lias a right to resort to abolition as a tear
measure in the rebel Staten.
[From tin* National Intelligencer.]
Tile President Inis l ■nlil.-il lit- nun nnnvlu
lions to the clamor of the “radicals,” in issu
ing his proclamation, and that this clamor
will be renewed to press him into the "next
step,” viz: idle dismissal of all generals who
have opposed the emancipation policy. Cer
tainly every military officer who disobeys the
laws and the orders of the President, must lie
removed’ and we apprehend that few will he
found w ho will not conform to the new direc
tion of public all'nirs.
The only tiling we have yet seen, that look
ed like revolt, or a suggestion that the procla
mation (silicy should lie forcibly resisted, is
the following:
[From the Portland Advertiser.[
Men of the Republic! Citizens of the Un
ion! w ho dare lie free, now is your time to
rise in your grandeur as freemen', and lilt your
voices against this desecration to fanatical ab
olitionism, of all the combined powers of the
Federal Government.
But let us not despair. If the President
shall fall from his hitherto sublime position of
nationality in conducting the war, which God
forbid, let us hope that the people of the glori
ous free and iude|iemleiit States that yet have
Congressmen to elect, will favor none, and
elect none, who will not have the courage and
manhood to say to him. and to Ids most per
verse advisers, “thus far shall thou come, and
no further.” The people have a duty to per
form to the w hile race in the name of liberty,
ami to perform it well let them through the
ballot-box accomplish what yet lias not been
accomplished through their armies, the sal
, Constitution as it is. In this direction
now, all our hopes turn, more than upon a rup
turedCabiuet, divided armies, ami a dispirited
soldiery, tcho may beyin to feel themselcessac
i rificed to an oligarchy of fanaticism, rather
| than to the enemy on the o|ien buttle Held.
[From the Eastern Argus.] v
We hardly need say to our readers that we
j saw this proclamation with regret, and we
think this is the feeling with the great major
ity of onr people.
In regard to this proposed emancipation pro
clamation to be issued on the 1st of January
next, northern people will ask but two ques
tions : 1st, is the exercise or attempt to exer
cise such despotic military power on the part
of the commander-in-chief of the United States
i lories justified by the constitution which be
J has sworn to support and in accordance with
the laws and usages of civilized warfare? and
j 2d, will it aid the Union cause? If we believ
ed both these questions could be correctly an
swered in tlie affirmative, the regret we feel at
the proposed action of the President would lie
changed to uuiningled gratification. But we
| cannot so see it. Hence our apprehensions.
We could fill our entire paper with notices
similar to the above, but these must suffice as
i samples.

Maine Seventeenth. — An officer con
nected with the Maine 17th, near Washington,
writes, Sept. 28th, “Our regiment is under
marching orders. We shall probably start in
a fen hours. 1 have learned only this much of
our destiny—that we are going to Fairfax, to
join Gen. Berry's brigade, Gen. Burney's di
vision. The direction is towards the confed
erate capitol. The “boys" are all in good
spirits, and cry, ‘On to liichmondf All indi
cations, so far as I am able to learn, denote a
movement of no small character in that di
rection. So mote it be.”
^y“The Argus and Advertiser have both
laid us under repeated obligations by stigma
tizing the Press as an abolition paper. The
people understand this dodge, and know that
what those sheets call abolition is only a firm,
, manly resistance of the ungodly demands of a
slave oligarchy, and that to become an aboli
tionist. as viewed from their stand-point, is to
be a loyal, unflinching, determined, uncondi
tional supporter of the government in its
struggle to put down rebellion, and the deter
mined opponent of whatever favors that re
bellion, whether it be negro slavery, or the
Portland papers referred to.
Hospital Stokes.—We have before us a
letter from a gentleman in Washington to Capt.
Win. M. Quimby of this city—who was wound
ed at Cedar Mountain, the hall not yet extract
ed—who says, to give an idea of the present
hospital needs, “There are 750 men now in
Harewood Hospital, that have not had a clean
undershirt since the Peninsula battles, and
have not had any money for four months, so
that they can buy tiny. They cannot take
them off to have them washed for fear of
catching cold. Just think of this anil tell
your neighbors. We are having some made
up, but cannot supply the demand. Stir your
friends up to send woolen clothing, such as
shirts, drawers and socks.”
The same writer says, “McClellan is sup
ported thoroughly, and is believed to be doing
all that can he done. Everybody is talking
about the Proclamation, but all seem to settle
' at last into the conviction that the President
| is right, and the war is about to be vigorous.”
Letter from Brunswick.
Brunswick, Oct. 3d, 1862.
Dear Press:—Tenney, of the Telegraph, is
angry with you and me, rery angry, I should
judge, and verily his rage is something terrible i
to behold. 1 know nothing in nature that
would resemble it except the wrath of a hyp- [
ocrite who, having all along deemed liis arts
successful, is suddenly made conscious of de- !
tection, and becomes aware that the men I
whom he meets daily, understand him thor- !
oughly, and know his antecedents.
He occupies fully one-third of a column to- I
day in venting his rage in a tirade which, to '
me, sounds very much like empty, vulgar
abuse. He is old enough to know that abusive
epithets indicate only the state of mind of him !
who uses them, not the character of the per- j
son to whom they are applied. Bystanders 1
will feel sure that the truth of your corres- I
pendent's communication is what has provoked :
such an effusion of bile. 1 turn him over to I
the next llsh-woman. I never deal in Billings
gate. So much for my share of his vitupera-t^
tion. Whether you transgressed any rule of
editorial courtesy is best known to yourself,
and you can tight your own battles. Whether
he tells the truth or something else, in charac
terizing my strictures on his last week's paper
as a “personal and nothing Itut personal” at
tack upon a brother editor,” your readers
know, und they are numerous in
P. S.—I think he would get a better sale for
one number of the Telegraph than usual, by
inserting my communication to you in bis next
issue. Ilis readers will then know what he
got so uina about, ana 1 dare say they would
consider it as interesting us most of the details
respecting the Tenney family, “the tows" and
“the mare Jenny,” that occupy so much space
in his columus. Pshaw! Mr. Editor, “the
game icann't worth the candle,” and I ask
your pardon.
' jf General Halleck has issued a circular
to the Governors of the several States, urging
them to till up the. vacancies of commissioned
officers who have fatten in the battles in such
large numbers recently, by appointing deserv
ing non-commissioned officers and privates
who have distinguished themselves in battle,
and have evinced a capacity to command, to
the vacant places.
